Sis 630 3d acceleration support XFree 4.3 Mdk 10

I've been using linux for like 6 months now and ever since I've tried to get 3d acceleration for my system, but never really had success, I've crashed twice my system, I lost the graphic mode and found no way to undo it, even with backups of the X11 and similar directories.

I know there is support for this card with 3d acceleration and I've heard of some people that got it working but I just don't know how, so If you are one of them plz post a reply and explain me how you do it, and remember that I'm just a newbie.

Also I've read about the whinchouffer's drivers but I've never been able to use them, since the installation instructions on his page are made for linux masters, so I've been really confused, and would really like to play tuxracer, or to run AoE or gta3 on linux.

I would appreciate your help

I enabled 3D acceleration on my sis630 chipset, but without succes because sis_dri would hang the machine. However, I can help you to get through Winisschofer's manual,maybe it will work on your system.

Basically, follow this, and apply these settings, variant 1 or 2.

Instead of me re-writing the instructions, where exactly do you get stuck?

Cheers, Leon.
